FAQ

When can we purchase a team ticket for the Chernobyl Septology?

On the 24th of March (09:00 UTC), the purchase link will go live. You can purchase a ticket for your team any time after that (even a month after the game is launched). Currently, there is no limitation on when you can get game tickets. As of now, team tickets have a 50% discount.

How do I purchase a game ticket for my team?

Click on the 'Book now' button in the upper right corner.

When can we start playing the game after we purchased?

Whenever you want.

How does the whole chapter thing work?

Chapters will be released on a weekly basis within the game, starting from the 24th of March, but in order to unlock each chapter, you must complete previous puzzles from previous chapters.

This is just like a TV series, where you don't just start watching from Chapter 6, but rather start from Chapter 1 and move on from there.

When will each chapter air? Where can we see it?

Chapter 1 -Core Galore- 24th of March.

Chapter 2 -Geiger says- 31st of March.

Chapter 3 -Natura- 7th of April.

Chapter 4 (TBA)- 14th of April.

Chapter 5 (TBA)- 21st of April.

Chapter 6 (TBA)- 28th of April.

Chapter 7 (TBA)- 5th of May.

If you purchased an access to the game, you'll see that on each release date a new chapter appears within the game. Oh yeah, you might want to refresh the game page to see the changes.

What are the puzzles like?

They are very visual and very cryptic. Not a lot of text, unless it's important.  Here you can find two example puzzles.

How long are these puzzle chapters?

Most chapters are expected to take between 1.5-3 hours (for a group of around five people). Some chapters may take longer than others.

Will there be any hints for the various puzzles?

Nope! I wish to sharpen your minds even at the cost of total frustration. I exist so you can become better. So yeah, no clues. Just work harder as a team.

If you're having difficulties, it's totally normal. Just remember that sometimes it's better to put a puzzle aside only to come back to it later with a totally new perspective. Once you get the puzzle right, satisfaction is guaranteed. 

I'll be joining the septology about a month after it is launched. Is it OK?

No problem. You can join anytime. When you purchase access to the game, you'll be able to see the past and present puzzle chapters (as well as future chapters as they're released).

Can we purchase access to some of the chapters and not the whole series?

So the thing is that you get all seven chapters in the price of one. So there's no point in separating the septology into individual events and letting you purchase each one of them (and it won't cost any less). I just want life to be easy, you know?

We're a large group and thought about dividing into teams.

What should we do?

If you split into multiple teams, you can challenge each other as well as the game.

Does the septology have any time limit?

Well, when you start playing you will see a timer, but it represents the rate at which caesium 137 decays, so you'll have plenty of time. No worries.

Are there any reddit channels related to the septology?

 

Sure! You're more than welcomed to join the reddit channel and meet up with puzzle solvers from all around the world. Discuss and share insights but please don't spoil anything!
